    Does anyone know how SOC or range is calculated on the Roadster? My fake sheet (bricks 46-54) has confused the roadster to drop it's range to 17 miles.

    17 miles in standard or range; ideal or rated?

    Standard could make sense. Range has to be calculated from the brick with the lowest amount of left energy.

    This is what I believe:
    SOC range in standard mode: 10 - 100 % SOC (not sure about the 10%)
    SOC range in range mode: 0 - 110 % SOC

    Your lowest brick has a SOC of 22% which is 12 % in standard mode.
    That would be 141 miles (rated?) for 100 % SOC.

    - - - Updated - - -

    That's strange. Brick #47 has a higher voltage but lower SOC...

    So the SOC seems not to be calculated from the voltage only.

    Thanks Marco.

    It was in standard mode.

    Before the mileage drop, I said I had 144 mile range, I think I need to do more playing on the fake sheet and gather more data.

    I noticed the lowest brick as I bring up the voltage on it, that range start to rise, seem like a direct correlation but I assume some SOC is factored in it.

    Sigh, I accidentally burnt out resistor R73 on the dc-dc converter... hopefully this will be an easy fix.

    Edit: BMB fixed, in case anyone cares, R73 is likely a current limiting resistor to the DC-DC converter, so if the DC-DC converter ever goes bad R73 will burn out.
